New Fall TV Schedule has a listing of the TV Fall pilots and series under development. Here's the one I'm hoping is good:

Poe (Drama)
Edgar Allan Poe (Chris Egan) is reimagined in this period crime procedural as a sleuth who uses unconventional methods to investigate dark mysteries in 1840s Boston. Chris Hollier (Alias) wrote the pilot and will produce along with Dan Lin (Sherlock Holmes). Natalie Dormer, Leslie Odom Jr., Tabrett Bethell and Kevin McNally also star.

How could that not be awesome?

Well, for starters I don't think I've heard of any of the people involved. That may not mean much, but it's also on ABC which is going to present Good Christian Bitches and an untitled Tim Allen Project.

I'm hoping the actor is of slight stature as Mr. Poe evidently was. Have you ever seen his house in the Bronx? Tiny.

And supposedly the Edgar award handed out each year by the Mystery Writers of America is lifesize*...
